Abstract

With the implementation of the new Common Core standards, there is a wide range of uncertainty on exactly how to teach the standards to students and how to determine that they have mastered them. Technology has repeatedly been looked to as a vehicle to help improve test scores. The Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) framework has helped define how technology meets content knowledge and pedagogy. Research has shown that by integrating technology effectively in the classroom and adapting a more learner or student-centered approach, the learners are more motivated which in turn could lead to learning at a higher, more cognitive level (Draude, & Brace, 1999). This study utilized a technology course to determine if students move from a more teacher centered approach to a student centered approach after completion of the course. Results of the study found that they do indeed become more student centered following completion of the course.
